yippee !!

Just stopping in to say that I just won this week's zakka style contest ... the big prize of a $75 gift certificate at the Fat Quarter Shop !!! Yay!

I've been wanting to tackle a large quilt project for a really long time ... so I think that this is the opportunity I needed, to help me stock up on some fabrics for a quilt for my bed (a queen-sized quilt ... am I crazy?).

Here's what I'm thinking ... I'm going to go for a modern style quilt, most likely something that has a lot of solids with a white background.

I might go in the direction of a wonky log cabin -- no surprise as I just made two of them (here and here).  I like this one with flea market fancy, this one or that one),

Or, I might go for a design like Denyse Schmidt's Bunch of Squares (this one has been haunting me recently).

Here are some fabric choices, all at the Fat Quarter Shop, that I could get in bundles to work into the quilt:

I'm just about sold on the Crab Shack ... it's the bicycles that really do me in (we're big into biking in our family!).   

Yay!  Isn't it so much fun to be dreaming of new projects?

  1. Congrats Jen! Those are great fabric choices (I just ordered Crab Shack :) ) I'm sure you'll end up with a lovely quilt, go for the queen size if you really love it!
